From Steve Sherlag & Michael DeMuniz:
We are gratified that the Oregon Department of Justice finally dismissed this case. It is disappointing that it took nearly two years and an incredible waste of our public funds to reach this result. Judge Day was looking forward to finally receiving a transparent and public airing of the facts, which we believe would have led to an acquittal on all charges. It is unfortunate that the Judicial Fitness Commission proceedings did not have the same safeguards as trial by jury, because if it did, we think they would agree that Judge Day was a thoughtful and caring jurist, dedicated to the citizens of Marion County and all of the participants in the Veterans Treatment Court.
It has been an honor and a great privilege to represent Judge Vance Day.
